IDGA’s Battlefield Healthcare Series summits are highly recognized and respected forums where those in the military medicine community interested in continuing medical education, networking, and advanced learning can come together for advanced and focused discussions on up to date clinical diagnosis and treatment techniques, lessons learned from the battlefield, and panel discussions that also allow participants to earn continuing education credits.

Military medicine recognizes that the care and well being of our warfighters does not stop when they return home. As such, we will bring together speakers from DoD and VA to present on similar issues and provide their distinct perspectives…with the end goal to provide a true continuum of care curriculum. In recognition that March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, we will dedicate several, in depth sessions towards TBI in your continuing medical education.
